Letter in today’s Westmorland Gazette follows on from last week’s universal condemnation of Trump and his love of coal.
“COAL MINE IS NOT WANTED
While there is universal outrage at President Trump’s announcement that the United States would withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, there is universal support here in West Cumbria for a coal mining plan that would tick all of Donald Trump’s boxes.
The planning application for West Cumbrian Mining’s new undersea coal mine was submitted to Cumbria County Council’ Kendal officies a day before the highly criticised Trump announcement.
In contrast all the political parties here in Cumbria have voiced unequivocal support for the first coal mine in England for 30 years. We hope that this is some kind of blip and sanity will resume.”
note: we have five weeks to stop this!
